I picked up Belif’s The True Tincture of Chamomile together with the Peat Miracle Revital Serum Concentrate a while ago on the recommendation of their sales personnel. I’ve been using this product for quite some time and today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on how it worked for me. Before we begin, let’s just check out its ingredients below, shall we?

How does the Belif True Tincture of Chamomile fare?
This product contains 86% of Belif’s chamomile tincture™, made by using the traditional herb extracting tincture method. It’s supposed to help in improving the blood circulation in your skin and gives vitality to the skin which helps with essence absorption in the next step. In a nutshell, it’s sort of like the First Care Essence prevalent in most Korean skincare. I usually use it in the hydrating essence step after I’ve applied all my actives in both my daytime and night time skincare routine. You can apply it either by pouring it out on a cotton pad and swiping it all over your face, or a more frugal way of using it would be to shake out a few drops of this product into your palms and patting it into your skin.
The first time I used this product, I was impressed by how soothing it was to my skin. I guess the chamomile extract as well as the oat extract in it are responsible for that soothing action. If my skin was feeling slightly sensitized by my strong actives, this product would calm down any redness in my skin fast. It absorbs quickly and easily into my skin and provides a light layer of hydration for my other serums to layer over. One of the reasons why I love using this product is also due to its minty herbal smell that just enhances the whole sensory experience of using it. Honestly I wasn’t expecting much from this product when I bought it so it definitely surprised me that I liked it this much. It actually reminds me greatly of my another beloved toner – the Clarins Toning Lotion With Camomile. I would gladly repurchase this product once I’ve worked through my stash of hydrating essences.
Where can you find it?
I bought this product from their standalone store. It retails at S$50 (75ml sized). You can find out more about the store locations of Belif’s products here.
